Oh wow! I cannot believe that I got a Special Mention for my Global Design Project card last week! Totally made my Monday.
This weeks Global Design Project is to Case The Designer, and this weeks card is the creation of the lovely Louise Sharpe; Mrs GDP herself! You can check out the card inspiration over on the Global Design Project Blog.
I have used Louise’s card as a sketch, and the colour combo was inspired by my ribbon draw! I reached into my stash of ribbon because I knew I wanted to use ribbon as the horizontal element and the first ribbon I picked up was this lovely ruched example in Sweet Sugarplum.
The butterfly can be found in Watercolour Wings. It is made of 4 different stamps, that I have stamped in 4 separate colours; Sahara Sand (stamped off once), Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry.
The tag is a 2″ wide piece of Watercolour paper that I have added a heavy wash of Sweet Sugarplum onto. I added different layers of watercolour (I love those hard edges in watercolour don’t you?) to create some more depth and texture. The sentiment is also from Watercolour Wings and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry.
I finished this card with a double bow of Linen Thread (one of my favourite elements of Louise’s card), Linen Thread is so easy to tie bows with, and I love this one where I cut a long length and folded it in half before tying the bow.
